Finished the fix up of this bike I picked up for free recently'as my first attempt at a project bike. I'm riding it to work for the first time tomorrow!

Replaced freewheel, tires,chain, cables/housing, seat, and handlebar tape.

Overhauled the hubs on both wheels and the bottom bracket.

I know I did not gt it perfect, but I'm quite proud if it.

Very Nice, I could use some help with some of my stuff if you have some spare time.The pay is low but the rewards are high! Who said sweat equity was only for houses? Right?

First ride went great! When I got home I needed to tighten brake cables and tweak the adjustable cup to fix some play in bottom bracket, but otherwise it worked perfectly!

Thank you all for the help answering all my questions I posted while fixing up this bike!
